Fairly nice exhibits. Looks like main area is very nice but it was being used by a group. Large selection of books to buy for 50c each.

Great place to visit if you love nature and hiking. You can hike the trails or enroll your children in very informative and fun day camps. I have done both personally and loved everything about it.

PEEC is a great place to have a wedding but they accept only a limited number of bookings so it is best to contact them soon.
